Weniger's story

Weniger, 36 years old, is a man who is always active. He very much likes to feel useful and to work to be able to support his family well and keep them in good conditions. He lives with his partner Nolita, 33 years old, with whom he has an 8-year-old son named Fernando. He works hard because he wants to improve the quality of life of his family. He lives comfortably with his family in their own home.

When a neighbor, acquaintance or new customer wants to carry out construction, raise a wall, build a house or install new cables and security for their electricity system, they don’t hesitate to call Weniger immediately as his work consists of constructing houses and doing the electrical work in them. He has been doing this work for about 6 years independently. Prior to that he worked for other people and it was there that he learned and gained a lot of experience in order to do it on his own during this time.

It is going very well for him. He has a lot of contracts and he always carries out his work in a good manner and with all the implements of security since he doesn’t want to have accidents to regret. When he was working for other people he had limited income and depended a lot on what they paid him but now he has a regular income according to the jobs that he does. He feels better and has greater autonomy in his finances. He wants to continue working and implementing with tools and equipment that allow him to carry out his work with greater speed.

This will be his third loan with MFP. He is very happy to know that he will have financial support, since thus he will feel secure in moving forward with his business. In addition, he is committed to being punctual, since he doesn’t want to make a bad impression on the nice group to which he belongs and to which he wants to belong for much longer.

With the amount requested of 2000 soles (PEN), he will buy materials, tools and equipment that he needs to continue with his work.
